Focus Ring issue on DA15 (owners welcomed in)

I had realised that the focus ring on my DA 15 isn't entirely smooth. When focusing towards close distance, it feels like its running over micro grooves and ridges but without any grinding sound. I can't say there is any resistance too and AF works fine. I suspect there may be some spring rubbing against the edge of the focus ring internally. Wonder if any DA15 owner can share his/her experience and whether you think this warrants a repair. I really hate to send it to the service centre. Thanks for reading!

Hi, Scorpioh, mine is entirely smooth over the whole range. Maybe it's a good idea to have it checked and replaced if necessary.

Regards,
Radu

Thanks very much for the confirmation. I'll see what I can do about it.

Just an update. I did an exhange with Adorama and the exchanged copy's focus ring is smooth and silky. Also think the finishing is a bit matt and felt-like compared to the rest of my limiteds - just a marginal difference.
